Zoom Zoom

I had a fun evening out with Nate last night. We went to a car show down on Main Street. Nate has been our car boy from day one. We used to thrill and impress our friends and family with his knowledge, when at age 3, he could name the make and model of just about any car he saw. As a little tyke, his first question when he met people was always, "What kind of car do you drive?" His summer jobs for the last three years have been working for car dealerships. His car is always spotlessly clean, inside and out, so that's the one I like to drive when he's not using it.


When it comes to cars, I really love all the details, so a lot of the shots I took were closeups of different parts of the cars.




Gotta love the classic Mustang.


Although your reflection in a car isn't exactly the most flattering, I thought it was pretty funny. Better than a fun house mirror.

More fun closeups.












Nothin' says fun in a small town on a Friday night than a burnout contest. This car was the winner. Apparently, the driver won a gift certificate to a local tire store. He'll need some new tires judging by the skid marks he left on the road.



One of Nate's favorite cars of the night.

Here's a license plate with some attitude.

I have always liked a clean car, as well. :)

I like the details, too. Had to laugh at the prize for the burnout contest, and that license plate is a stitch.

Looks like you two had a great time. There is nothing like a classic Mustang nice.

The idea of a little guy asking, "What kind of car do you drive?" just cracks me. Such a great mental image. My car would horrify your son--you'd never be able to get a reflection shot in it.

These are FABULOUS! I love that classic mustang, my dad has a '68 and it is his BABY. I should get some shots of him with it!
